The dealer has produced five pages of automotive research in total, with comparisons that include the 2017 Kia Forte with the 2016 Dodge Dart in the compact car class and the 2017 Kia Sorento vs. the 2017 Dodge Durango in the midsize SUV class.  Other comparison pages include the 2017 Kia Sportage vs. the 2017 Dodge Journey

The research compares features and performance of the vehicles.  When it comes to value, Friendly Kia has a lower asking price than the local competition selling Dodge vehicles.  Friendly has a VIP Price which discounts vehicles at least $4,500 off MSRP across the board for new models.  

The all-new 2017 Kia Sorento offers superior fuel economy to the 2017 Durango, with 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway.  The midsize SUV also has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick and has a more lightweight construction, with most trim levels around 1,000 pounds lighter than the 2017 Durango's, which was not named a Top Safety Pick. 

The redesigned 2017 Kia Sportage, a small SUV, tops the 2017 Dodge Journey crossover across the board, with high marks in fuel economy (23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway), base towing (2,000 pounds) and base horsepower.  The 2017 Journey lags behind with 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and only tows up to 1,000 pounds in base models.   

Interested vehicle shoppers can find these Kia vs. Dodge model comparisons on the Friendly Kia website.  The dealer also has comparison research pages for Kia models vs. other major automakers like Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda and Toyota, among others.
